(to most entities)
Against most mobs, the Hag Hacker only deals its minimum base damage; however, it will instantly kill any Swamp Hags it is used against, making it very useful. Like all Betweenlands tools, the Hag Hacker deals more damage in the Betweenlands than vanilla tools.
The Hag Hacker is unique in that it has certain elements of both a sword and an axe. It has the same attack speed as an axe and is capable of disabling shields. However, it can also deal damage to multiple mobs in swipes, like a sword, and does not cut down wood more efficiently than a sword does.
Unlike most other equipment with durability, there is no way to repair a damaged Hag Hacker.
The Hag Hacker is found in a "Good as new!" state of corrosion, with 0/255 corrosion points. Simply having it in your inventory will cause it to start corroding; using and swinging it as well as being in water will increase its rate of corrosion. Corrosion decreases its damage output.
A corroded Hag Hacker can be cleaned in the Purifier, resetting its corrosion value back to 0. It can also be applied with Scabyst to give it up to 600 coating points, which keep the corrosion level static until they are depleted. Visit the Mechanics page for more details on corrosion.
Middle Gems Edit
As with most equipment, the Hag Hacker can be equipped with Middle Gems as part of the Middle Gem Circle to apply additional buffs to the player using it. The type of gem equipped can be seen in its tooltip. The bonuses provided can be seen on the gem's own tooltip.
